"Red, White & Royal Blue" and "Mary & George" star Nicholas Galitzine is about to embody one of the most iconic blondes in history.

That's right. The man, who seems to be everywhere as of late, has been cast as barbarian He-Man in a highly-anticipated "Masters of the Universe" film adaptation, reported Variety.

"Bumblebee" director Travis Knight is in the director's chair for Amazon MGM Studios and Mattel, and the film is expected to hit theaters on June 5, 2026.

"We're thrilled to bring the beloved 'Masters of the Universe' to life and couldn't be more excited to announce the immensely talented Nicholas Galitzine as our He-Man," said Julie Rapaport, head of film production and development at Amazon MGM Studios. "This reintroduction of the character and his universe will be an epic film that will delight audiences from here to Eternia."

And Galitzine is on a roll with Amazon MGM Studios after starring in "The Idea of You" alongside Anne Hathaway and, of course, "RWRB," which has a planned sequel in the works.

In other words, Galitzine is a busy man, and Masters of the Universe" has reportedly been in the works for two decades.

Amid multiple changes of directors, "West Side Story" actor Kyle Allen was also allegedly attached to the project at a time but things fell apart. Now with Galitzine in the league, the project is that much closer to making it across the finish line.

"Masters of the Universe" follows Prince Adam a.k.a. He-Man, who crashes to Earth in a spaceship as a child and, decades later, returns to his home planet to defend it from the evil forces of the baddie known as Skeletor," reads a prior synopsis of the film, Variety reports. "But in order to defeat the powerful villain, he needs to uncover the mysteries of his past and become He-Man, referred to in this world as 'the most powerful man in the universe.'"
